The 'heat' is on for cancer

SANTA CRUZ , Calif.—As we noted in the May issue of Drug Discovery News, researchers at the University of California-Santa Cruz (UCSC) have developed the Cancer Genomics Browser, a suite of Web-based tools designed to help researchers find patterns in the huge amounts of clinical and genomic data generated by large-scale cancer studies. The team created the Cancer Genomics Browser "to extend and complement" the UCSC Genome Browser, and it did so to help medical researchers who hope to identify genetic signatures and other biomarkers in cancer cells that can be used to predict how individual patients will respond to different therapies throughout the course of their treatment.

The cancer browser can display both whole-genome and pathway-oriented views of genome-wide experimental measurements for either individual samples or sets of samples. These views are presented as genome "heatmaps."

To access or find out more about the browser from the people who created it, visit http://genome-cancer.ucsc.edu/.
